DEFINING A CULTURE ART EXHIBIT BY GABRIEL TREVINO - MARCH -APRIL : 2014


 

The idea of the exhibit is that you can appreciate a combination of the work in a control setting,,,, in a curated show, that I think makes one painting work with the other.. I couldn't be happier with the selection of the pieces and how we...ll they fit in this gallery space.. Best comment of the opening night " I have been to other shows but this is different, I feel I can see right into the artist soul"....I hope you get , chance to see it... I can post picture after picture of the show, but you wont get to appreciate the presence of the work, once your in the gallery -Treasures of the Gulf Museum... and take perspective.. it is not only visually stimulating , but it carries certain values that well represent Mexican-American culture in my view.... Many thanks to all who support the work that I do... GABRIEL TREVINO,  FIND SOUTH TEXAS ART, ART ON THE BORDER, ART IN THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY, MEXICAN-AMERICAN ART...
